Our family of 6 spent a week in paradise at the Somerset Resort. After reading some of the reviews, I was a bit hesitant. I'm glad that we decided to take a chance. We rented one of the estate condos directly on the beach. It was beautiful to say the least. It had 3 bedrooms 3 baths, full kitchen, living room and laundry room. The service at the hotel was wonderful, although it's not a Ritz.. You can stop at the pool bar and ask them to serve you at the beach, but they don't come back and check on you like they do when you're pool side. We ate at the pool bar almost everyday for lunch and once for dinner. Although they are a bit slow at preparing the food, it was always very good. We all enjoyed being served drinks pool side. The resort has pool/beach towels so there is no bringing your own and having to wash them. After walking up and down the beach, I would not have picked another location. The beach was like a pool, so crystal clear. The resort was not crowded so it provided us a very peaceful place to relax. The owner had a couple of floats that we took to the beach and floated for hours at a time. We listened to another couple who had spent a couple of days at Beaches Resort and were very unhappy. It was very crowded at Beaches and you had to compete for beach/pool chairs every day. At the Somerset, we never had to do that. It's small enough that the employees start to remember you day after day. The beach side pool is very nice and our children spent many hours there after being at the beach. We stayed on the bottom floor and really liked it because we could easily walk out the door and be at the pool or the beach. We did rent a car and made one trip to the IGA. I took one extra suitcase and loaded it down with snacks, cereals, etc. Even though I had read how expensive the food on Provo was, I was still shocked at the grocery store prices. Since everything is shipped over there, things cost more. In the end, I was glad that I took a lot of the food with us. Plus, it gave us an extra suitcase to bring home souveniers. The weather was perfect and we didn't get too many bug bites. I took off with us and used it on the nights we were out. I only had one bite while those who didn't use it had 5 or 6. We also enjoyed a night out at Hemingways and were pleased with the food. After a wonderful week, we will definitely return to this resort!
